* TheDanza: In the first season, minor outlaw Martin is played by Martin West.
* DuelingWorks: The show was scheduled directly against the Creator/ColinBaker era of ''Series/DoctorWho'' for the teatime-adventure audience... and, in what was seen as a major sign of that era's dubious quality, regularly trounced it in the ratings.
* FountainOfExpies: Nasir led to the creation of similar characters in several subsequent Robin Hood retellings, either due to a desire to make the cast more ethnically diverse or just because the later creators assumed that he was a traditional character.
* HeAlsoDid: Mark Ryan (Nasir) voices Bumblebee in [[Creator/MichaelBay Michael Bay]]'s Film/{{Transformers}} movies.
* TheOtherDarrin: Baron de Belleme's girlfriends were recast in "The Enchantment", probably because they had to do some plot-relevant acting instead of sitting around looking hot.
* RealLifeRelative: Edward of Wickham's son Matthew is played by Jeremy Bulloch's real son Robert. According to DVD extras, many of the child extras were real children of the cast and crew.
* ThrowItIn:
** An on-set accident in which Robert Addie's horse clashed heads with Jeremy Bulloch during a take was included in the finished show, reframed as a deliberate KickTheDog moment on Guy's part.
** During the filming of the quarterstaff fight between Robert of Huntingdon and Little John, Clive Mantle accidentally really hit Jason Connery over the head. Again, the blow was included in the finished show.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** [[Creator/PaulMcGann Paul Mc[=Gann=]]] auditioned for Robin after Michael Praed left, but was considered too short.
** Alan-a-Dale was intended to be a recurring character, but the production team and regular cast considered the actor's performance to be very poor.
** A pitch for a SequelSeries set ten years later had Michael Praed's Robin BackFromTheDead or NotQuiteDead.
** There was supposed to be a fourth season but the series was discontinued. There were serious plans for this to include Guy killing Marion in order to ignite the final conflict. (Something which eventually did happen in the later BBC ''Series/RobinHood'', to very controversial effect.)
* WordOfGay: According to a DVD interview with Richard Carpenter, original Merry Men Tom the Fletcher and Dickon were a gay couple. Unfortunately, they were the ones who [[BuryYourGays got killed off in the second episode]].
* WordOfSaintPaul: According to Creator/RayWinstone, Will Scarlet regularly used to go off and rob people on his own and [[SociopathicHero not give the money to the poor]], with the incident in "The Children of Israel" not being very unusual.
